One-on-One Coaching


Most of the time, coaching isn’t something you can explain to someone who hasn’t experienced it. The coaching experience can’t really be described in some slick set of words designed to attract a search engine. Under the right circumstances, one-on-one interaction with an objective third party can provide a focus that other forms of organizational support simply cannot. 

Whether you need guidance about a tricky life transition or tools to navigate your changing career, working with me as a personal or professional coach gives us the chance to clarify what is important to you, explore the choices you are currently making and how those choices affect your journey toward or away from your dreams.

 

Personal Coaching

Get help defining you way forward as you navigate a life transition.

As your coach, I want what you want. Life coaches have no agenda. We are there to listen, ask you powerful questions and use other tools to spark insights, creativity and change.

Many people choose a coach when they reach a critical decision point in their career or personal life and need some help defining a way forward. Some are experiencing a disconnect between how things are now and how they’d like them to be. I can help you explore where you are now, what’s holding you back and how to integrate long-lasting and positive changes into your life.

When you have planned, made decisions and worked towards goals that reflect your values and needs, the potential for change is enormous.


Professional Coaching

Gain clarity, courage and confidence for the next steps in your career journey.

So, you are a busy, successful professional who wants to effectively develop and take charge of your career. Workshops and books and mentors are great, but there is still something missing – the personal touch. I am in your corner as a partner who is focused on your professional life and what you want to achieve.  I take on several pragmatic roles:

Educator/expert – here to help you with a specific set of challenges or goals in which I have experience – change, team building, communication, leadership, etc.
Thinking partner – here to be the voice of reason, not emotionally attached to the issues or players, and to help you think through options
Resource – here to curate resources like books, blogs, articles, other people
Champion – here in your corner celebrating wins, large and small while you gain courage, clarity and confidence for your journey
Challenger – here to help you stretch beyond your self-imposed limits and let go of beliefs and behaviors that are holding you back
Mirror – here to help you see what you cannot see for yourself – strengths, liabilities, habits, possibilities, connections

I commit to bring all of my experience and wisdom and resources to helping you do all you want to do and be all you want to be.

 
The most important relationship we can all have is the one you have with yourself; the most important journey you can take is the one of self-discovery. [...] Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
— Aristotle
